I NEED to compress and password protect files and get a TRUE original file when I un-encrypt. When I use Disk Utility I can create a compressed and encrypted Disk Image, but when I open the encrypted .dmg I get a mounted disk image not a TRUE file as I wish to have.

Is there some thing I've missed that allows me to compress and encrypt (password protect) the file and get an actual file, not a mounted disk image, when I un-encrypt like I can with Stuffit Deluxe?

I wish OS X's <Create Archive> let me compress and ENCRYPT (password protect) the file. An encrypted .zip file from the Finder would be a really good thing.
